In the combined Z/ZZ-Licht class of the Anemone Horse Trucks Stallion Competition Dressage, only the seven-year-old GLOCK’s Taminiau (s.GLOCK’s Toto Jr.) and Hans Peter Minderhoud entered the arena today. Nevertheless, he was the undisputed winner.
Three times in a row, the jury placed GLOCK’s Taminiau (GLOCK’s Toto Jr. out of Vitamin C elite pref prest PROK by Sandro Hit, bred by Jan Holtland of IJsselmuiden) on top in the competition. In Kronenberg he scored 92 points, in Ermelo 90 and in Exloo 89 points. The jury again granted high marks in the final, with 9s for the walk, trot and canter and a 9.5 for the general impression and submission. The test was rewarded with 92 points in total. In the competition, the stallion ended with 363 points.
Joy to watch
Monique Peutz shared on behalf of the jury: “This was the last combination of the day but was certainly worth sticking around for! We all have truly enjoyed this performance. In the test there such a lovely partnership between rider and horse. The walk is very powerful. In the trot the beautiful half-passes stood out, showing great balance. In the canter, the stallion showed a powerful jump and abundant ability to collect and extend.” Jheronimus )out of A.Bertje ster pref prest PROK by Jazz, bred by W.P.S. van Weert of Beesd) was in second place in the intermediate standings with Kirsten Brouwer, but was absent in the final.
